We came across Mica’s art during a game of ‘I’m stoned and on the internet at 3 am’. Her art shot out from the screen, a style which pushes free sexual expression with animals prancing around in pools of colour. There may be some deeper messages within her work, but the tongue in cheek element makes way for the viewer make up their own mind. A nice balance really.
Originally from the U.S.A, she is currently living in Windy Wellington, New Zealand. The concept of an American living in New Zealand is an intriguing one. Serj Tankin (lead singer of System of a Down) lives there, Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers) once lived there, but then sold his property because it was too far a commute from his mansion in L.A. Is it to escape the big smoke? or does N.Z provide a more wholesome community vibe that most of us tend to crave these days, because we’re all living in concrete boxes without backyards? It’s definitely alot greener and cleaner than most places on earth.
